  1. Looks great.
    However,if you are going to use SLI/CF later or overclock your CPU,then consider a P55 board.
    Also if you play at resolutions like 1080p or higher,get the 1GB version of GTX 460 because the extra memory is useful in many titles.
  2. What is a good P55 board for the i3
  3. asus p7p55d-e pro
  4. +1^ That's a great board

    If you're going for gaming, go for the AMD Quad Cores and use the saved money on your power supply if you're going to SLI/CF
  13. True^
    Like I mentioned in my first post,consider a more powerful PSU if you want to use SLI/CF later.
    For 2 GTX 460s,a good 650W+ PSU is fine.(Like Corsair HX 650)
